Avoid workouts or activities that involve a lot of sweating, tanning beds, swimming pools and massage treatments.
Spicy foods & hot drinks. Try and drink through a straw for the first 3 days.
Always apply an SPF after healed to preserve pigments longer.
It may be necessary to cold compress after treatment as the area is very sensitive and may cause swelling. A cold compress may be done for up to 24 hours. The area can be blot cleansed with a damp cotton pad and aftercare applied to treated area as needed. Do not let the lips dry out. Aftercare will be needed until the lips are surfaced healed. A slight peeling or flaking may occur. Once surface healed, continue to moisturize lips with a balm or sauce to help keep them hydrated. Please do not rub or pick the treated area as this can cause the premature removal of pigment. Be sure to wash your hands more often and use hand sanitizer to prevent any possible spread of germs that may cause infection.
Touch ups if needed can be book 4-8 weeks after the initial procedure.
